      Are there any non meat items? Fish? Seafood?

        yes, try the Shrimp bobo or the Fish muqueca, everyone that tried them said it was delicious...

        Funny, a burger is one of the last thing I'd think to order at a Brazilian cafe. What makes it "to die for"?

        1. re: CapeCodGuy

          CCG, what WOULD you order at a Brazilian Cafe?? Do tell...

          1. re: phelana

            I guess Feijoada would be my first choice if it's on the menu. It's a stew with black beans and many different smoked and sun-dried meats, especially pork, and smoked sausages. It is usually served with several traditional side dishes, including orange slices, shredded kale, rice, cassava meal browned in butter and a hot pepper and lemon sauce. Second choice would be Pasteis Fritos, which are like Brazilian empanadas filled with chicken,beef, fish, or cheeses. But a burger? Nah!!

              typically is Brazilian fare mostly meats? I would love to stop by if they have fish or seafood...Flaesantos??

              1. re: phelana

                Although meats are usually prominent on Bz menues, fish sould be plentiful as well. What is Flaesantos?

                  Flaesantos is the name of the person who replied to Jillian

                    Humor reigns supreme - delightful. Now, Flaesantos, it's back to the food desk.

                    1. re: phelana

                      Ok...so I guess I won't be ordcering the "Flaesantos and Rice" special!

                    2. re: phelana
